Thailand’s Heath Department has recommended that lovers and spouses avoid sex, if there is a risk of getting infected with COVID-19, and avoid sex with strangers.

Director of the Office of Reproductive Health at the Health Department Dr. Peerayuth Sanukul, said today (Wednesday) that having sex during the spread of COVID-19 infections is a health risk and, therefore, they should consider the risks and consequences to themselves and others in society before having sex.

He said that, if a person has tested positive for the virus, or is awaiting the result of a COVID-19 test, they should refrain from having sex until they are cleared of the disease.

Dr. Peerayuth also warned individuals to avoid having sex with strangers, to reduce the risk of getting infected, adding that anyone who is worried about having sex could access the Thai Save Thai website for risk assessment.
